400,000 join Facebook event to 'storm' Area 51 and 'see them aliens'


However, there are still many people who failed to understand the irony, and several people assure that they will storm into Area 51 on September 20.

Here's the plan, as per the creator of the event: "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry".

It appears the person behind the page is surprised by - and anxious about - the amount of interest generated as 313,000 Facebook users as of Thursday afternoon are listed as "going" on September 20.

The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, within the Nevada Test and Training Range.

According to the event's hosts (a page that posts memes and someone who streams video games on Twitch), the operation will involve running supernaturally fast - faster than the guards' bullets can fly - but will be worth it to "see them aliens".

If you've ever wanted to see alien life for yourself, the opportunity may have arrived.

The group plans to do a "Naruto Run" - arms back, head forward, and very, very fast - in a nod to the popular anime.

A large group of people are determined to uncover the secrets being housed at Area 51, a top secret military installation in the middle of the Nevada desert.

Since then, however, it has become the subject of numerous UFO sightings and has become inextricably linked in the public's mind with captive aliens and government conspiracies.

What takes place inside the heavy-duty fence at Area 51 has remained a mystery to anyone without high-level security clearance, save for a few photos taken illegally by curious conspiracy theorists.

In 2013, the military admitted that the base existed and claimed that it was a researching and testing facility for top-secret military aircraft.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
